I've got a few diabetic relatives,

Talking with them, I asked if their doctors had ever discussed low carb eating at all

They all said No, had no real understanding of what role excess carbohydrates intake had in their Type 2 diabetes

Mainstream medicine is grossly behind
The only dietary advice they've get is cut back on food intake, cut calories,

Eat lean proteins and low fat and healthy carb

Zero understanding of how insulin signaling works, no exposure to ideas like protein intake and satiety

Zero understanding of how muscle can help...
I could say these are personal failures on their part to not educate themselves,

But it is insane that its 2020, & overweight and obese people are being given 1985 advice that was bad then and bad now

Following #lowcarb twitter would help them more than their medical providers
You have people with metabolic syndrome and are obese,

And the advice is "moderation"???

Their entire metabolism is screwed, that is not remotely helpful

Cut the carb intake and get them eating protein and fat

This was proven over 100+ years ago by Banting, yet its ignored
